Chatswood's high-rise buildings and crowded shopping centers echo Sydney's Central Business District, Chatswood's skyscraping counterpart to the south. Despite this North Shore neighborhood's similarities to the CBD as a cultural, retail, and transportation hub, Chatswood's residential serenity distinguishes it from other urban centers. Brick cottages, contemporary performance spaces, and tree-lined streets await beyond Chatswood's towering buildings and bustling malls. Another celebrated difference? Chatswood is home to an influential Chinese community whose culture and cuisine enhance the neighborhood.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
